HC Deb 23 March 1984 vol 56 cc615-6W
Mr. Soames

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether current or planned deployments have altered the declarations of forces to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Mr. Stanley

We do not at present expect current or planned deployments to alter significantly the level of our force commitment to NATO. The availability states of specific United Kingdom ships, army units and aircraft to NATO are, however, altered continually in the light of operational movements.
